DUMMY LAUNCHERS

These specialized training tools incorporate the sound of gunfire with a fast-moving target. There are several styles, but they all work basically the same: load the dummy on the launcher, insert a .22 blank cartridge and fire. By varying the flight angle and the strength of the cartridge, you can include both short and long retrieves out to 90 metres in your training program. These launchers are available as handhelds or stand-mounted remote-controlled units.
